Kansas City Newborn Photographer | Kai

Lacey Rene Studios is a Kansas City newborn photographer specializing in maternity, newborn, motherhood and family photography. She services mothers with hearts and hands full who long for a stress free experience and printed artwork to share within their homes.

I’ve said it before, but for me, it’s about the relationships. I’m always in awe of the people that come across my camera (and become a part of my life) from this sweet job I’m allowed. Meeting Carol was no different.

A couple years ago I photographed the most breathtaking outdoor wedding at Wildcliff Weddings & Events. Lo and behold, Carol was the wedding coordinator. She was kind and caring. Organized and involved. Over the past couple years we occasionally intersected paths, always with a hug and always with eagerness to catch back up. (Once at that same bride’s baby shower!)

So when Carol’s third son was born, having her into our studio was a gift. Motherhood is so natural on her. We sat while Kai nursed and she told me the incredible story of their surprise pregnancy (she was four months along before she knew she was pregnant!) She told me of the blessing her son is and the fullness he’s brought to their family.

And that’s when it hit me again.

Stories are a gift. And everyone’s story is different. Full of joy and surprise, full of unknown and long paths. Full of blessing and abundance. And being your story keeper is an honor. My hope is that the images that I take would inspire families to relive their tales over and over again.

“Getting our photos taken at Lacey’s studio was so special. She went the extra mile to help both the baby and I feel comfortable and made it as easy as possible.

I absolutely love that she had a client wardrobe that had dresses readily available and they were beautiful! Each was a different color and style, great options to choose from. Having that at hand took the stress away because finding what to wear is always the hardest part of photo sessions for me. The face that she had options to choose from there saved me so much time.

Lacey is so sweet and great at what she does!”
